Classic Car Overview

Bid and win this vehicle on Bid.WheelerAuctionGroup.com Elvis Presley put two bullets in his 1971 Pantera. Looking to roar away after an argument with his girlfriend, he couldnt start the car. So he shot it. BAM, BAM! With Italian looks, American muscle, German engineering and Argentinian origin, the De Tomaso Pantera already had a cool international story before being shot by the King. Alejandro de Tomaso, the spoiled racecar-driving son of a prominent politician, fled Argentina for Italy in 1955 after being implicated in a plot to overthrow the Argentinian president, Juan Per n. Italian for Panther, the Pantera was De Tomasos second car, designed in Italy by Ghia and looking every bit the Italian exotic. A mid-engine car, the Panteras muscle is supplied by an all-American Ford 351 Cleveland V8, and represents the automakers attempt to bring sexy back after losing the Cobra. The cherry on top of the complexity sundae, power reaches the tires through a five-speed manual transaxle made by the German builder of gears for Zeppelins and other airships. This particular 1971 De Tomaso Pantera, chassis #1726, has been restored and modified. Finished in Rosso over black leather, the interior features an upgraded Pioneer/Sony audio system. The bright red exterior benefits from full bodywork, a respray, and an eye-catching delta wing. The engine bay, itself a work of art, was repaired with steel then shaved and filled, painted and polished, and dressed up by a polished transaxle case and chrome cross members. The engine features a Demon carburetor, MSD ignition, roller tappet lifters, big camshaft, polished Edelbrock intake manifold, finned Pantera air cleaner cover, and finned De Tomaso valve covers. The upgraded exhaust rumbles like an earthquake, warning theres some real bite to this cars bark. Wilwood brakes slow your roll on wheels with center caps sporting the colors of the Argentinian flag and the T-shaped logo based on the cattle brand of Alejandros ranching ancestors. Now its your turn to join the story. Feast your eyes on this car in person. Start it...dont shoot it! Hear it and drive it. Theres nothing like it. It could be yours, but not if you dawdle.
